    The use of the fictional storyline set in the backdrop of a historical event is nothing new for the world of film and television, but it doesn't happen very often in the world of comics, so I commend Brian Wood for pulling it off. Dean Ormston manages to raise the bar past the work he did for Issue #9 with both great action sequences and emotional moments. I hope we get to see more work from Ormston on this series in the future. I am very interested to see the next arc, since it will essentially be taking us from the very beginning of the Viking age to a story taking place at the end of their rule in Ireland.

    Definitely get this issue if you got the first in the two part story. #10 is stronger on nearly all points and wraps quickly and neatly. It will raise the level of the story overall and make you excited for Woods next tale. Ive found myself looking forward to the next set of characters, which is a nice change of pace. Before this issue I would have considered myself more apprehensive than anything else. Kudos to Wood. Read Full Review
